Early times Report

Srinagar, Oct 29: Restive Kashmir has come under scanner for alleged human trafficking following recovery of girl hailing the North East from a bungalow in Srinagar here. Sources said the Jammu and Kashmir Police have filed a complaint and arrested a few persons in connection with the complaint of illegal confinement of the said girl.
Sources said after filing of a case at a police station in Srinagar a police team raided the place where the girl was kept captive.
Sources said the girl was recovered from there and handed over to her parent, who hailed the police. It was reliably learnt that atleast two persons were arrested in connection with the case on the spot. Sources said the police have got inputs that the girl was handed over to some influential family in Nishat by a firm dealing with domestic help. Sources said the police are probing if the girl was forcibly transported to Kashmir for forced labor. “If this becomes true then it will be probed if human trafficking is taking place,” said one official on the condition of anonymity. Sources said till now numerous people have filed such complaints that the domestic help who were non-local were being ill-treated in Kashmir and that they were being put to forced work.
Sources said such firms get human resource from outside Jammu and Kashmir and subsequently provide them to clients for domestic help for a period of one year.
It was reliably learnt that such firms provide the workers at a fixed amount which is paid to the agency by the client but that money is not paid to the one who actually works as domestic help.
“How can the firm sell people like slaves. India is a free nation and any such case should be taken to its logical conclusion,” said some locals.
A senior police official confirmed that a case has been registered under relevant juvenile act.
